I'm an evolutionary biologist currently working in Dr. Frank Burbrink's lab, formerly located at the CUNY College of Staten Island. I use snakes as a system to test hypotheses of evolution and historical biogeography. I work on aspects of speciation, historical biogeography and population demography, mostly in North American serpents. For more information on what I am studying and specific projects, check out the interests tab on the right.

If you have any legally collected tissues of Thamnophis sirtalis from Southern Georgia, Canada, or along the Mississippi River, please let me know.

Each dot represents a locality at which I've collected one or more snake tissue samples from 2011-2015, separated by year using color.
